SE Learning Outcomes

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are specific skills that students will possess at the end of the degree program. Student Learning Outcomes provide curricular guidelines with respect to the program. The SLOs of the undergraduate program in Software Engineering at California State University, San Marcos are aligned with the student outcomes (1) through (7) as recommended by ABET for accredited Engineering Programs.

Students who graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering are expected to demonstrate:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, security, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
